Love Winter in Quebec! from StoryTravelers on Vimeo.

Let’s be honest.

As we fight our way through the grey winter days our nights are usually filled with dreams of warm, tropical getaways.

But what if you could #LoveWinter?

Real winter; Canada’s snow-dusted landscapes and sunny skies are waiting, and it’s just a few hours from Europe!

They say Quebec’s magic is awakened by the first snowfall. Secrets can be found hiding beneath the mirror-like surface of Montreal’s ice lakes. And “don’t miss!” the unbeatable adrenalin rush that comes from flying down the slopes of Mont Tremblant, cross-country style, without a care in your mind but a smile on your face.

StoryTraveler’s Caspar Diederik is grabbing hold of winter 2014 with two mitten-clad hands, packing his case for Canada and taking us (and his camera) along for the toboggan ride.

From the 3th of february 2014 till the 9th he’s going to show us how you can #LoveWinter together . All together with his friends slash influential bloggers Keith Jenkins, Melvin Böcher, Nienke Krook and Rebecca Enright.

As an iambassador Caspar will bite into the best of #QuebecOriginal – tasting thrilling snow sports, traditional past times and of course the new-wave culinary ventures. Imagine EVOO’s fusion menu of classical French, traditional Irish and southern Mediterranean or the Society for Arts and Technology’s progressive Foodlab where invention is just the roux of the bechamel. Now we’re hungry.

But next week’s journey is not all wine and dine for our trusty StoryTraveler. Caspar will be trying his hand at authentic ice fishing. But with heated shelters on Montreal’s first urban ice fishing village, from which you can catch three species of fish (but not the flu), perhaps he won’t be doing it so tough at the Old Port after all.

He’s informed us he’s packing his swimsuit too. Has all this travel finally made him crazy? No. The slopes of Tremblant will welcome him with warm open arms and spa facilities. He better not over-indulge at the authentic sugar shack!

Perhaps the toughest part will be keeping up with the Australians when the iambassadors skate-off against the Aussie instagrammers. Ice is sure to fly!
